tv Hillary Clinton Campaigns in Tampa Florida CSPAN July 23, 2016 6:06am-7:01am EDT
texas. always 1992 convention in new york city with arkansas governor bill clinton accepting his party's nomination. >> in the name of all those who do the work, pay the taxes, raise the kids and play by the rules, in the name of the hard-working americans who make up our forgotten middle class, i proudly accept your nomination for president of the united states. past national conventions tonight at 8:00 plm eastern on -span. democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton has announced virginia senator tim kaine is her choice to be her vice-presidential running mate. senator kaine is 58 years old, a former governor and mayor of richmond and also was chair of the democratic national committee. today hillary clinton holds a campaign rally at florida international arena in miami and senator kaine is expected
to be there. our live road to the white house coverage begins noon eastern on c-span. democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton reacted to this week's republican national convention in cleveland saying the
speakers focused more on her than solutions in problems facing the country. this rally in tampa is just under an hour.
life growing up here in tampa nd her strong endorsement. i want to thank my long time friend and colleagues from the senate, your senator bill nelson. i also want to thank your great mayor. i also have a few others to thank because i'm thrilled to have so many strong florida leaders with us here today. ounty commissioner les miller. former governor and soon to be congressman charlie crisp. -- charlesy crist. former mayor sandy friedman. we've got a great group of state representatives, council members and so many more.
i'm grateful to each and every one of you who are here with us. i got to tell you, did any of you watch that convention in cleveland? you know, it was kind of perversely flattering. it's hard to believe they spent so much time talking about me and so much time not talking about jobs or education or health care. no matter who your political leanings, i think we can all agree that never in the history of conventions certainly, but i think even more broadly, have we moved forward together by pointing fingers and scapegoating and blaming people instead of rolling up our sleeves, getting a plan together and then working to
chieve it? something has gone terribly wrong when one speaker says, "vote your conscience" and gets booed. i mean, i never thought i would say these words, but ted cruz was right. in this election, do the right thing and vote your conscience. vote for your future. vote for a united states of america.
s. clinton: i think many of us elt that those speakers, including their nominees, were not talking about the country we know and love. they weren't talking about the work people do every day, the opportunities we try to seize, neighbors helping neighbors. i didn't hear any of that. instead, i heard about donald trump's dark and divisive ision. last night's speech took it to a whole new level. he offered a lot of fear and nger and resentment. but no solutions about anything
e even talked about! he didn't have a jobs program, did he? all that talk about keeping people safe, i didn't hear any plans about what he's going to do to support our police, to make sure we are all working together? you could listen to that speech and you could think, my goodness, he believes america is in decline. i got to say, as he said this last night, i was pretty shocked. he said, i alone can fix his. [crowd booing] just think about that for a minute. it's really important. his vision of america is one
where we americans are kind of helpless. we need to be rescued. i can't really imagine him on a white horse, but -- that seems to be what he's telling us. alone can fix it. well, he doesn't understand that americans, we americans, we are strong, bighearted, results oriented, generous people in america! i've spent applause] a lot of time, a lot of wonderful time traveling across our country. i've seen people fixing all kinds of things.
i've met educators like delia, working with teachers and parents to turn around schools and give kids a better chance. [cheers and applause] i've met small businesses and entrepreneurs who get up every day and work really hard. when they make a contract for their goods or their services, hey expect to be paid. [cheers and applause]i've met so many wonderful men and women who serve in our military. they know their job. hey know the grave responsibility they fulfill, and they get up every day and they do their best. but i've never heard one of them say, i can fix it alone. [cheers and applause]
i was in orlando before i came here to tampa. and i had the great honor of sitting and talking with some of the residents of that beautiful city and hearing what they are doing together to deal with the aftermath of the worst mass shooting in american history. the mayor spoke with great pride about how his city had responded. the police captainin charge of the swat team talked with such conviction about how when the moment arrived, the police in orlando were ready. they had trained. they supported each other.
they were ready. the captain didn't say, i can fix it alone. he said, i'm a member of a team. the best team that anybody ould have. [cheers and applause]i met some of the hospital and medical personnel who were there to take the wounded, and work so heroically to save lives. every one of them doing his or her part. triage, nursing, doing everything. i didn't meet any one of them who said, hey, i can fix it alone. cheers and applause] i've never heard of an american leader, or at least someone who wants to be an american leader, claiming that he's all we need. that's not a democracy, my friends.
as i recall, we had a revolution to make sure we didn't have someone who said, i an fix it alone. [cheers and applause] the other thing he said that really shocked me -- it is hard to know where to start, isn't it? well, last night donald told us, i am your voice. [booing] well, i don't think he speaks for most americans, do you?
he doesn't speak for small businesses like the ones he has consistently stiffed and driven into bankruptcy and financial peril. he doesn't speak for the work man that he has employed on his various projects and then refuse to pay them. he doesn't speak for the housekeepers and the cooks and everybody working at a hotel in las vegas that he owns that have voted to have a union and he refuses to even talk to hem. [booing] he doesn't speak for emigrants. he only speaks against immigrants. he doesn't speak for people with disabilities. he doesn't speak for our
military, which he has insulted consistently, and in in particular, prisoners of war ho sacrifice much of their life because they serve us. and contrary to what they tried to say at their convention, i don't think he speaks for women. ms. clinton: i don't think he speaks for working families who would be devastated by his reckless economic policies. he doesn't speak for anyone who thinks our country should be standing together, not splintering apart. he sure doesn't speak for me, because i know we are stronger together, and that's what we
are going to be next year! cheers and applause] [crowd chanting "hillary"] ms. clinton: now, starting on monday in philadelphia, we will offer a very different vision. it's about building bridges, not walls between people. it's about making the economy work for everyone, not just hose at the top. it's about embracing our diversity that does make our country great.
i have to tell you, in orlando today, in listening to people who had been there that night, meeting a mother whose son died , meeting others who barely escaped after hiding from the sitting around with leaders of the lbgt community, leader of the swat team, a county commissioner and a muslim iman who has been , i acing the lbgt community was so proud, so proud. well, but i'm proud of everybody in this country who gets up every day and makes a
contribution and does your part. and what the folks in orlando said to me was so touching. they said we have to stand against hatred no matter who it's against, racial hatred, religious hatred, homophobia, all these hates that infect the soul. and we have to stand against violence everywhere. and that includes standing up for common sense gun safety easures.
i want to say something else because this is serious to me. i love this country. i am so grateful for all the opportunities and blessings i've had and i am so humbled by the prospect of being nominated next week in philadelphia. here's what i want you to hear. i will do everything i can to make life better for hard-working americans. i will do everything i can to bring people together. i will do everything i can to keep us safe and i know a little bit about that.
you can't really put this into law is what i'm about to say. but we need more love and indness in this country. we need more respect between and among our fellow americans. we need to be listening more to ach other. the last thing we need are leaders who try to divide us even more than we are. we should be working to reach out to those who are different from us. our difference which is make up our diversity makes the united states the strongest, best positioned country in the world.
i understand there's a consitsy for the fear and anger we saw last week. i know there are people who are feeling insecure and anxious about their lives. about their futures and maybe realize they won't have a standard of living as their parents or grand parents or as they hoped. i know there's a lot of angst. about all the changes happening in the world, technology and globalization. i understand all that. i respect those with legitimate concerns but i've never known america to quit on ourselves. i've never known us to give up in the face of tough
challenges. i've never known us to basically retreat into the kind of isolationism that was being advertised at their convention. that is not who we are. those are not the values that made this a great country. and don't ever forget, we are a great country. already. can we do better? of course we can. can we be fairer? can we provide more ladders of opportunity? yes, we can. that's exactly what i stand to do if given the great privilege of being your president. will work every single day.
to make your dreams come true, to make you believe that america's future can be even better than our past. we are a forward looking nation, aren't we? d i know if we set our goals and if we work to achieve them we will. it has always been us. this country has always delivered for the american eople. we've had some challenging times and taken detours and took a long time for some people to be given the same ights as everybody else. we know that. but there's no place on earth that historically has continued to move forward toward that more perfect union. the last thing we need is
mebody running for president who talks trash about america. so i hope you know that this campaign is really going to take a lot of work. i hope you will join us. ou hope you will take your phones out and text "join" 47246. or go to my website, hillaryclinton.com, to get involved. and i want to tell you this, especially the young and young at heart -- we are hiring organizers right here in florida! if you would like to apply, go to that website.
we want the very most energetic, enthusiastic people, because our success in the i-4 corridor is essential to our winning. mrs. clinton: and i'm excited about this campaign. because i believe that when it's all said and done, all of the scary speeches with all the ide effects are over, people have stopped yelling at us at the top of their lungs like they did all week -- that we will choose to be stronger together.
mrs. clinton: that's what i'm counting on. that's what i, in my heart, believe is the right course for our country. it is the only course, the only course that leads us with confidence and optimism into the future. and i know that we are up to the task. i know we are. and particularly to all the young people who are here today -- cheers and applause] mrs. clinton: every election is always about the future. this election is truly about your future. [cheers and applause]mrs.
clinton: so today in orlando, when i asked everybody around the table what they wanted, what they needed, they basically said, we need people o understand what we've gone through, to be there for us, for the long term, to help us help all those who were affected in all the families, and we need to stand up against hate and divisiveness. [cheers and applause] mrs. clinton: and the best way i can sum up what i hope this election will lead to, the conclusion we will reach
